WWE star Ryback wants to replace Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator franchise.
The 32-year-old professional wrestler - real name Ryan Reeves - has admitted he would love to launch a Hollywood career like fellow wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson and has had a lifelong ambition to play the cyborg assassin character that propelled Arnold, 66, to worldwide stardom in 1984. "I feel like I'd be the perfect comic book villain. I've always said that I've been waiting for the Terminator remake to happen so that I can take on that role. So if anyone out there is listening - the big guy wants to be the Terminator," he said.
Although Ryback would love to play the famous role, the dedicated grappler would only consider an acting career if it didn't interfere with his grueling wrestling schedule: "I'm a WWE superstar first and foremost and I enjoy working the WWE schedule and I take pride in being able to do all I've done - all the live events since I've been here, and being in all the television tapings and working the full schedule, being on the road five days a week and home a day and a half. If we're able to work something out and if we have a weekend off here and there to do a movie or to go that route and still be a WWE Superstar, then, let's do it!"
Paul Walker's younger brother has reportedly been asked to help complete Fast & Furious 7.
The 40-year-old actor was on a break from the upcoming movie when he tragically lost his life in a blaze when a car he was traveling in crashed into a pole in Santa Clarita, California on November 30, and his lookalike sibling, Cody Walker, who has worked as a stuntman, has been asked to step in to help filmmakers finish the movie as a tribute to Paul.
"Producers had a string of meetings right after Paul's death. They soon realized they needed someone who looked like Paul to finish the movie and that's when they approached his nearly identical brother, Cody. They can shoot Cody from behind and at distance and if it's a shot they need Paul's face in close up they can CGI it later on. If Cody agrees it's because he wants to honor his brother's memory. There are many details that still need to be worked out, but right now the family and cast and crew are all still grieving," a source said.
Trudie Styler thinks that George Clooney should be cast in movies alongside women his own age.
The film producer - wife of "Shape of my Heart" singer Sting - has blasted ageism in Hollywood, using the 52-year-old hunk as an example. "Look at George Clooney...I'm a huge admirer of his, but when he plays a leading man in a love story, his love interest is always 10 years his junior. Why not have an actress the same age as him? Hollywood always wants to rose tint everything, but this doesn't even reflect real life. In life, you see younger men and older women and the majority of marriages don't have such a huge age gap as we're used to seeing in films," she told The Daily Mail.
Leading ladies who have played opposite George include Jennifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta Jones and Renee Zellwegger, all of whom are now 44. However, in real life, ladies man George's last three girlfriends have been much younger than him, with him dating Stacy Keblier, 34, Elisabetta Canalis, 35, and Sarah Larsen, 32.
Bruce Jenner has landed a small role in a movie.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 64, has scored a part in the upcoming film, The Hungover Games, a comedy that spoofs a number of blockbusters including The Hunger Games, The Hangover and Ted.
The Olympic gold medallist, who announced his split from his third wife of 22 years, Kris Jenner, in October, is playing one of the futuristic Hunger Games play-by-play announcers alongside Kendra Wilkinson's husband, Hank Baskett, according to gossip website TMZ.com. A photograph has emerged from the set of the movie that shows Bruce, who has six children and four stepchildren including Kim Kardashian, wearing blue lipstick, perfectly shaped eyebrows and a wig.
The movie, which will also feature Tara Reid, Brandi Glanville, and Paris Hilton's aunt Kyle Richards, is expected to be released next year.
Jennifer Hudson feels pressure as an actress after winning an Oscar.
The actress-and-singer earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her very first film role as Effie White in 2006 musical drama Dreamgirls, and she admits being so successful at the start of her career has made her conscious of her acting in subsequent movies. "When I did Dreamgirls, nobody was paying attention to me so I had nothing to prove. Now, I'm the 'Academy Award winner, Jennifer Hudson,' so everybody is watching," she said.
The spiritual star - who first came to prominence as a contestant on singing competition American Idol in 2004 - believes her acting career is a "reward" for embracing her "gift" of singing. "For me, music is always there. Music connects me to my emotions. Someone once told me that singing is my gift and acting is my reward for using my gift. God chose to bless me with an acting career because I honored the gift of singing that he gave me," Jennifer, 32, explained.
Henry Cavill is sure Ben Affleck will make a "fantastic" Batman.
The Man Of Steel actor's Superman will be pitted against Ben's character in the provisionally titled Batman Vs Superman in 2015, and he's positive the star will do a great job of playing the superhero.
"I'm sure he'll be fantastic, above all else. As a filmmaker he's got his own style, he's not copying anyone else. He's been tenacious in his career, he's had ups followed by downs and now he's up again. I think that requires and shows a special strength of character and it's something I enjoy working with because jobs like this require a dedication to the work and belief in one's self, and Ben has that," he said.
David Beckham wants Brad Pitt to portray him in a movie about his life.
The retired soccer star is a fan of the Hollywood hunk and thinks if a film were ever made about him, Brad, 49, would be a good choice for the starring role. "I think Brad would be the obvious choice. I'd like Brad to be playing me - him or Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the two. Or Bradley Cooper. They're not bad looking guys," David joked.
Naomie Harris says playing a Bond girl made her feel "darn good" about her looks.
The 37-year-old beauty, who played Eve Moneypenny in blockbuster hit Skyfall, admits playing a glamorous secret agent opposite Daniel Craig as James Bond helped alleviate her insecurities about her appearance. "I have to say, it does make me feel pretty darn good. When you get those moments when you feel, 'Oh God, I look like such a minger today' ... Then you think, 'I was cast a Bond girl, you can't really be that much of a minger, Naomie!'" she said.
While many actors play coy about Oscar buzz for their roles, the British actress candidly admitted she is excited about potential awards recognition for her portrayal of Nelson Mandela's ex-wife Winnie in new biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom: "I'd be bloody over the moon! I'm not gonna be, 'Oh no, not an Oscar nomination!'"
Bret Easton Ellis has retracted his love for troubled actress Lindsay Lohan.
The writer recently opened up about the critical and box office failure of The Canyons, a 2012 film he wrote which starred Lohan and famed porn actor James Deen. "I think where we went wrong was with the casting of Lindsay Lohan. Now I don’t mean she wasn’t good in it, she was very good in the movie. I mean that suddenly The Canyons has become the Lindsay Lohan film," he explained.
